this is an email i just got from verizon DSL services

         
Hackers would like nothing better than to get their hands on your personal data. And every time your PC is connected to the Internet, you’re a potential target.

That’s why we recommend all Verizon Online customers protect their PCs with ZoneAlarm Pro.
 
 ZoneAlarm Pro offers you award-winning firewall protection. You can count on advanced features like these:

Stealth Mode makes it so your PC can’t be seen by hackers.

Hacker Trapping and Mapping identifies and locates the source of attempted hacks.

Program Control stops unknown intrusions and controls what gets into AND out of your PC.

Advanced Mailsafe protects against e-mail viruses, Trojan horses and spyware.

Plus, easy step-by-step installation gets you protected quickly — and expert technical support is available at Zone Labs online.    
 
ZoneAlarm Pro is available to Verizon Online customers for just $39.95 for a year’s protection. That’s a savings of $10. Best of all, you can try it free for 90 days — and test it yourself at no obligation. You’ll be eligible for the discount price as long as you purchase it before the trial period ends.

ZoneAlarm Pro is provided by Zone Labs which is responsible for the performance and warranty of this software/service. Verizon is not responsible for the performance of ZoneAlarm Pro provided by Zone Labs. Any inquiries or problems must be directed to Zone Labs.

If you prefer not to receive promotional e-mail from Verizon Online, please send a blank e-mail to remove@verizon.net. Please do not reply to this e-mail. This mailbox is not monitored.

"Stealth Mode makes it so your PC can’t be seen by hackers."

the first 2 lines are probably from verizon, the rest is probably all cut and paste from the zonealarm propaganda. I wonder how much they paid verizon for permission to SPAM their targeted market under the false facade of verizon being concerned for your security?
